The Juhamnu Pavilion is a building in the gardens of the royal palace of Changdeokgung. The first floor is a library, Gyujangkak, and contains thousands of historical documents. The floor above is a reading room.
The Changdeokgung Palace complex is listed by UNESCO for being a remarkable example of architecture from the Far East.
The stamps that came on the card are lovely. Top left is the flag of Korea, bottom left is the bird, Parus major. On the right we have one of the stamps issued for the Olympics this year. This one shows an archer superimposed on Big Ben. Another shows a swimmer going past Tower Bridge. The additional portion showing the London Olympic mascot appears to be an illustration between blocks of stamps. See this page for a better image.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
